The Best Coach and Quarterback Duos in the NFL

 In Football, NFL, Sports

The offseason list and rankings roll on today, as it’s definitely May and there’s not much else to write about. Yesterday, I counted down my favorite 25 quarterbacks of the 2000s so far. Today, I’m going to be looking at the current landscape in the NFL, and offering up my favorite coach and quarterback duos in the league today.

So, what am I basing this off of? Chemistry and success – that’s about it. How well does the coach and quarterback duo work together? How does each party’s skillset enhance the relationship? And, ultimately, how much winning has the duo done together?

LFG.

The Best Coach and Quarterback Duos in the NFL

5. Jared Goff and Sean McVay – Look at Goff before McVay. Look at Goff after McVay. 2019 might not have gone the way the Los Angeles Rams wanted it to, but the genesis that the young quarterback underwent when McVay came to town, and the fact that this duo played in the Super Bowl a year ago speaks for itself.

4. Doug Pederson and Carson Wentz – They may have already (technically) won a Super Bowl together (kind of), but one can’t help but wonder about the heights this duo could soar to if Wentz could just get healthy and stay healthy. Pederson has proven to be one of the best play-callers in the league. And, when he’s healthy, Wentz has been a candidate for MVP.

3. Pete Carroll and Russell Wilson – You don’t normally think of ‘passing offense’ when you think of the Seattle Seahawks. But, the results speak for themselves – Carroll and Wilson are winners together. Carroll allows his guys to be themselves, and it’s proven to be an effective strategy. They’re each among the best at their respective positions, and have a Super Bowl under their collective belt.

2. Patrick Mahomes and Andy Reid – Bonus points for including offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy into the fold. It appears that Mahomes and Reid are just getting started together. Only two seasons in to Mahomes starting full time, and the duo already has a Super Bowl championship and a League MVP title to their name.

1. Drew Brees and Sean Payton – Gotta start with the duo that has been together since 2006, guided the New Orleans Saints to a Super Bowl Championship, and fielded some of the best offenses in the NFL over the last 14 years. Everyone always talked about the Brady-Belichick, but I think the one between Brees and Payton is much more symbiotic and cohesive.
